Those of you sticking so close to the iPhone app streets that you can tell that an app is coming before its developer even develops it knew that there was an app by the name of QuasiDisk out there today, one that allowed you to take advantage of tethering from your iPhone. This functionality is now allowed otherwise, so it was assumed early on that this app would, upon being updated to having this ability, be cut down from the market like a kite from a tree.

A week with iPhone 4S: my first 10 apps

For those of you just joining us for this adventure, you should know that I'm taking part in a real-life experiment in which I'm using an iPhone 4S for a week exclusively as my one and only smartphone. You should know, for context, that I generally use Android devices, having used the Samsung Galaxy Nexus essentially exclusively since it was released with Verizon, switching back and forth between it and whichever phones I've reviewed since. Though I've handled and worked with an iPhone a minor amount before, I've never before now had one as my own personal device - what follows are the first ten applications I found myself downloading right out of the box.

There's a new voice assistant warrior in town, and it's name is Evi, bringing nothing less than a Siri contender using True Knowledge tied with Nuance voice recognition for a one-two punch that will give the rest of the fighters in the ring a run for their money. As Techcrunch writer Mike Butcher notes, the team at True Knowledge have been working on a Siri competitor since the iPhone 4S was released, and probably before that as well. What's out today is not only an iPhone application (that also works on iPad, mind you), but a Beta version of an app for Android.

When you take a photo at the wrong angle on a camera, you've got no choice but to either cut off all the edges and get a smaller photo or just take it again altogether - but with AntiCrop for iPhone and iPad 2, that process has been automated and magically moved forward.

In-App purchases set to dominate the business says IHS Screen Digest

This week the folks at IHS Screen Digest Mobile Media Intelligence Service have shown that given the information they've got on in-app purchases for app sales revenue verses in-app revenue, that the latter will be dominating the market in no time.

Star Wars lands on iOS and Android via Brisk for 3D release

If that title didn't get you pumped up about what this release possibly could be: have a look at the title image here, complete with gigantic claymation heads on Yoda and Darth Maul, a team of force-wielders whose new favorite drink is Brisk Iced Tea.

They've got not only this utterly strange duo of video ad spots, but an iPhone app called Brisksaber for your free downloading and use, right this second!
